March 9 – Saint Frances of Rome


listenGentle Holy Spirit, Saint Frances of Rome (1384-1440) was a good wife, and yet her husband ridiculed her.  I give to You all the married Christian women I know.  May their faith become a great witness to their husbands.  Replace arguments and division with peace and unity.  Bless the husbands with a fuller understanding of Christian beliefs and the reasons behind true Christian values.  Teach them to become the men You created them to be, and help the wives stand strong against worldly ways and the temptations of sin.  In the same way, assist the Christian men who are married to non-believing women.  Saint Frances of Rome, pray for us.  Amen.
